The assessment criteria are in line with living costs and Swiss circumstances. Please note, that additional costs such as for travel expenses or higher cost of living abroad are not covered. In cases of financial straits, we recommend a regular exchange at one of the partner universities of the University of St.Gallen for which another scholarships (eg ERASMUS) can be applied for. Free movers are refunded the HSG tuition fees for the exchange semester against presentation of the receipt for their payment of the tuition fees charged by the host university, provided that the fees paid to the host university correspond to at least the HSG tuition fee. Please note that this regulation is valid until autumn term 2017 only. As of the spring semester 2018, HSG Freemover students are required to pay a reduced Freemover fee of CHF 700 instead of the regular HSG tuition fee regardless of the amount paid at the host university.
